Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Internal Medicine

Internal medicine, also known as general medicine or adult medicine, is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of adult illnesses and diseases. Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, are specialists who have completed a minimum of three years of training in internal medicine after medical school.

Internal medicine physicians provide primary care to adults, and often act as a patient’s main point of contact for their healthcare needs. They are trained to identify, diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses and diseases, from common conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, to more complex conditions such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. They also manage chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and help to prevent illnesses through screenings and immunizations.

Internists are experts in the use of diagnostic tests and procedures, and in the management of patients with multiple coexisting medical conditions. They also provide care for patients with undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes, that can be complex and challenging to diagnose and treat.

Internal medicine physicians often work in outpatient clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities, and may also have private practices. They collaborate with other healthcare providers, such as specialists and nurses, to ensure that patients receive comprehensive, coordinated care.
